AVOIDING "IRS" SCAMS
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service always sends letters; it does not make unsolicited phone calls to taxpayers. Never accept or return a phone call from someone claiming to be with the IRS. The IRS also never discusses personal tax issues through unsolicited emails or texts, or over social media.

LEARN ABOUT ADVANCE PLANNING
Goodwin House is promoting advance planning as part of National Healthcare Decisions Day. Watch "Being Mortal" in the Auditorium Friday, April 26, at 3:00 p.m. followed by a short discussion and information about advance planning. GHBC social workers and nurses will be available to answer questions and to sign you up for one-on-one sessions. "Being Mortal" is a video developed by the PBS series Frontline. In it, Boston surgeon Atul Gawande explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life, including the obstacles in talking about death that prevent honest discussions about advance planning.
